Lets get one thing straight about director Dario Argento – he’s incredibly overrated. I’ve argued time and time again that Luchio Fulci is a far more interesting filmmaker and who’s films are usually better. Yet somehow most horror buffs think of Argento has the greatest Italian horror director.
Just when I think Argento can’t get any worse (Mother of Tears) he proves me wrong again and again. A prime example is his 2009 thriller Giallo, a movie so bad that I’m sure Argento himself tries to forget it exists. With that said, I can’t say I’m excited about his Dracula 3D feature, despite the casting of Rutger Hauer. In any case, as with all Argento films, fans still can’t help but hope that maybe one day he will once again make a good film. Below are the first stills from Dracula 3D.
